The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has sought 1.81 hectares (ha) from the Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) near the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) toll plaza on Sirhaul border adjacent to the Delhi Gurugram Expressway to set up a concrete batching and mixing plant to aid the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) project, according to documents seen by HT.
According to a letter sent to HSVP by the chief project manager, KK Gupta, NCRTC Gurugram, temporary casting yard sites are required near the alignment of the rapid rail where concrete batching and mixing plants will be set up for the RRTS project.
